I am always open to suggestions that will help in the future though.
Is this wire round or flat, I was told by someone flat wire could not be pulled in?

I think that you're correct.

I keep telling Jim to setup a tech support system and we would gladly pay a subscription to that service. LOL

Maybe a DVD box set on locating and troubleshooting? Not that you would need one, but let me know if you want an investor?

That it correct. I did not know what type of blade it was called. I have heard it referred to as a T blade. But what A Drought said is what the blade we used does.

I actually told the owners how I was able to find the wire (I told them previously I was unsure if I could). I told them about this site and Jim and they were pretty impressed with you guys. We are a pretty big company I think, and they have never heard of this site or how good the help and constructive criticism is here.
